Philip “Flip" Edward Burleson, 75, passed away at his home in Port Aransas, Texas, on May 30, 2022. Flip was born January 19, 1947, in Norfolk, VA, to Philip and Lenagene Burleson.

He lived life on his own terms, enjoying the things he loved. He was an expert craftsman, fisherman, and marksman. He loved dogs more than most humans.
